Summer Camp Scholarship Fund

What are Summer Camp Scholarships?

Summer Camp Scholarships are fee waivers available to help eligible families decrease the cost of Recreation Summer Camp Program fees. Summer Camp Scholarships are only available for Nottingham Recreation's 8 week summer camp programs, not in addition to camps such as soccer, baseball, softball, lego, horse, swim classes, etc. Scholarships can be rewarded to children going into our Summer Camp grades 1st-9th and also to our Counselor in Training Program grades 10th-12th. Our goal is to be able to give 10 children within the community full waivers of $800 each. Those awarded scholarships will be provided with 2 snacks and 1 lunch for every day of camp.

We are only able to do this each year through fundraising and donations. Our Summer 2018 goal is a total of $8000. We have started fundraising with our Holiday Craft Fair and our next fundraiser will be with Paint Nite! Please go to the link below to Purchase a Paint Nite ticket with our fundraiser code (VF-NOTTREC) and $15 of your full ticket price will be donated to Nottingham Summer Camp Scholarship Fund.
